    Never lose track of an object of interest! Intelligent Tracking automatically zooms in to and follows a selected Intelligent Video Analytics object as far as possible with the camera. For AUTODOME / MIC IP 7000, this means automatically steering the camera to zoom in to the object and follow it. For a FLEXIDOME IP panoramic 7000, Intelligent Tracking is available in the Virtual PTZ video and steers the dewarped cut-out. For DINION / FLEXIDOME IP 7000 / 8000 cameras, Intelligent Tracking can steer a region of interest (ROI) stream. This article describes how to set Intelligent Tracking up with FW 6.30 and lists the differences based on the camera types.

    Question   What should you know about SNMP and Bosch cameras SNMP support?   Answer   This article explains briefly the basics of SNMP. Declares the basic terms of the protocol. It also explains what part of the protocol is supported by Bosch cameras. Basics of SNMP and terms. Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a common protocol to monitor the health  status of a system. Such a monitoring system typically has a central management server that  collect all the data from the system’s compatible components and devices.  SNMP provides two methods to gain the system health status: –The network management server can poll the health status of a device via SNMP requests. –Devices can actively notify the network management server about their system health status in case of error or alarm conditions through sending SNMP traps to the SNMP server. Such traps must be configured inside the device. Details how to configure Bosch camera to send SNMP traps - How to activate the SNMP and configure sending SNMP traps from Bosch cameras?   SNMP also allows configuration of some variables inside devices and components. The information, which messages a device supports and which traps it can send, is derived from the Management Information Base, the so-called MIB file, a file that is delivered with a product for easy integration into a network monitoring system. There are three different version of the SNMP protocol: –SNMP version 1 SNMP version 1 (SNMPv1) is the initial implementation of the SNMP protocol. It is widely used and has become the de facto standard protocol for network management and monitoring. But SNMPv1 has become under threat due to its lack of security features. It only uses ‘community strings’ as a kind of passwords, which are transmitted in clear text.Thus, SNMPv1 shall only be used when it can be assured that the network is physically protected against unauthorized access. –SNMP version 2 SNMP version 2 (SNMPv2) included improvements in security and confidentiality, amongst others, and introduced a bulk request to retrieve large amounts of data in a single request. However, its security approach was considered way too complex,hindering its acceptance. Thus, it was soon pushed out by version SNMPv2c, which equals SNMPv2 but without its controversial security model, reverting to the community-based method from SNMPv1instead, similarly lacking security. –SNMP version 3 SNMP version 3 (SNMPv3) mainly adds security and remote configuration enhancements. These include improvements on confidentiality by encryption of packets, message integrity and authentication. It also addresses large-scale deployment of SNMP.   Bosch cameras SNMP To check what SNMP version does a particular camera support, check the data sheet of the device. (Find it under your device in the product catalogue - https://www.boschsecurity.com/xc/en/product-catalog/) since FW 6.40 onwards Bosch devices support SNMP v1 legacy and SNMP v3

    The IP camera address is always the key if you would like to monitor or remote viewing it. Like any network device, the camera is assigned an IP address when it is connected to the router with Internet access and powered on. Here we will introduce 3 ways to find the network camera IP address quickly and easily.

    This article will guide you to upgrade your MIC camera. This procedure is not applicable for   MIC   440 Explosion Proof version. Protocol change must be executed in our repair center, hence unit must be send to our repair center by RMA procedure.   Connected by use of USB / RS485 converter. Do not use the “Transparent” USB converter anymore as this is not compatible the latest version of Universal Camset Software 4.12 Make sure that you have the MICUSB485VTR2 (USB to RS485) Make sure you have programmed on your PC latest Firmware of Camset Software. Version 4.12 includes the MIC file 1.07 which contain all available protocols.   IMPORTANT: DO NOT connect theMIC-USBto the PCUSBport UNTIL AFTER the software has been installed. In case   Bi-phase   card has been inserted in Power Supply box, remove this PCB during upgrading of your   MIC   camera, in very few cases this could cause a connection failure.

    RTSP and multicast streaming There are different ways for a client to receive a multicast stream: the client can connect to the camera and request a multicast stream. In this case you would see a connection in the dashboard. If not checked, it requires at least one connected client to have the camera provide the stream into the multicast group. Clients who just joined would receive no stream if there is no client connected. the client can join an existing multicast stream without connecting to the camera. It must know the multicast group. You would not see this client on the dashboard. The streaming flag tells the camera if it should feed its stream into this multicast group, regardless of a connected client. This is an option if there are many, many clients possibly connecting to the same camera/stream. There is no difference in data amount if streaming is checked or not as long as there is at least one multicast client connected to this multicast group. Below you find a way how to pass a special connection string to request a multicast stream via RTSP from a BOSCH IP camera or IP encoder.

    Sometimes it is preferable to have a different “user mode” during the day then in the night. Our cameras by default have the option to switch the user mode e.g. triggered by the camera D/N switch over. But also other triggers can be chosen. Below an example how to setup the “user mode” switching triggered by the D/N switch over.
